SECTION 3.9 : Unordered Expressions

Unordered Expressions, as defined in 3.9, returns a sequence of
items in a nondeterministic order. 
Consider the following XQuery example defined in 3.2.2 Predicates
by applying the additional fn:unordered() function:

(fn:unordered(21 to 29))[5]

Since fn:unordered() returns a sequence in a nondeterminstic order,
it should be clarified that the result can be any integer
value between 21 and 29.
The behavior needs to be specified in 3.9 and 3.2.2.
